Event info

The Spring Meeting - Friuli Venezia Giulia Trophy is a FAI 2 competition which takes place in a flight zone well known by European pilots but where, until now, no important competition has been held. We intend the Spring Meeting as an opportunity to test the Pre-World and World Championship flight field, but our aim is to organize the event each year, starting from 2017.

Event info

The Spring Meeting - Friuli Venezia Giulia Trophy is a FAI 2 competition which takes place in a flight zone well known by European pilots but where, until now, no important competition has been held. We intend the Spring Meeting as an opportunity to test the Pre-World and World Championship flight field, but our aim is to organize the event each year, starting from 2017.

The flight area is mainly in the foothill but, depending on weather conditions, it is possible to fly also in the Alps and in the flatland. There are different takeoffs; two of them are in Slovenia and can be chosen in case of changeable weather.

Besides the competition, there will be an Expo area next to the landing field and many different activities will be organized for families, friends and visitors.
